I think it's like Ingrid says. Not the same thing, but usually pick up means pick up and knit. You can just put the needle back through those stitches without pulling the yarn through. I don't know a good reason to do this. Maybe when you are going to knit a pocket directly onto a sweater? I may be trippin but I thought I saw a picture like that in my Big Book of Knitting. Otherwise, people usually tend to keep the stitches live if they want you to put them back on the needle later.
